Calculate volume of Object

May 9, 2013 at 7:08 PM
Hello,

First of all wonderful job with the library!! I have been using the ModelImporter class for loading STL files into my program, but I would also like to calculate the Volume of a given GeometryModel with a MeshGeometry or a whole ModelGroup with several geometry models inside. I have already found a method to calculate a volume from here Calculate Volume but since I'm new to this I'm not sure how to re-factor it to fit in my case. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

You can use the Visual3DHelper.TraverseModel method to traverse the Model3DGroup. This method will also give you the transforms that should be applied to each MeshGeometry3D to calculate the volumes correctly!
